G'kar,

Thanks for that definitely, maybe, kind of, non committal answer :-)..... I take it you are a Babylon 5 fan :-)

I apologize for the semi-regular posting seeking on the status of RLMP from me. Although late to the game. I now think the responsive grid framework method of web design is very intriguing. I hope to add Coffeecup new product into my arsenal of software to help me transition from a hardware/software technician to a would be Web designer.



Yeah I'm B5 fan in fact Sci Fi fan in most things.

Intriguing is an interesting choice of words :P I have never seen RLM in action but hopefully it's got some promise, as the work around now for all sorts of devices is a lot of graft. I personally not sure whether designing for tablets is all that necessary they do a good enough job and in some cases websites as normal look better there than anywhere. However smart phones with the popularity is a genuine target market.

I think what you guys are really waiting for is the Responsive Site Designer. The Responsive Layout Maker is not a site designer or anything like what Visual Site Designer is.

Don't get me wrong the RLM is the best thing since sliced bread! Honestly its a one of a kind, ground breaking software application. Basically the RLM allows you to create a responsive layout and control all the break points and alter the element properties for each point. When you are happy with the layout you can export it similar to other cc programs.

Once it has spit out the pages and css its then up to you to open the pages in your favourite Coffee Cup HTML Editor and start modifying the code and adding the details if you will. Just remember from that point on its a manual coding process. You cannot go back the the RLM and make some adjustments to the elements and Export again as it will over-write any changes you have made.

Or you can go back to the RLM and make the changes and save as another project then copy your changes back into it from the first one.

As Jo Anne mentioned above this is a great layout tool that can be used to draft together sites, mock up if you will, and collaborate with clients until its exactly the way they would like it to be.

I give this app a 10 out of 10 score but I am really excited for the Responsive Site Designer and Responsive Shopping Cart!

It's hard envisaging something that you've never seen if you haven't seen anything like it before. But how I imagine it is that it does the Responsiveness so in my mind it's a tool so that the coordinates if you like are for a large screen say 21in right the way down to mobile phones. I know that you would have to export it to and editor but it has that skeleton in place to put the meat on the bones if you like, is that right?

Exactly right! It gives you bare bones framework to work with. Once its done you edit the pages it spits out. Good news is we are working all the bugs out (WOW Slider, Visual Lightbox) before you guys get it :)

Not to many bugs so far... its mostly bugs that really aren't CC's fault. But hey they have proven they are miles better then the competition and have applied the fixes to the RLM even though its the 3rd party software that should be making the changes to their products.

So what do you think needs doing to it before it becomes mainstream?

IMO it is perfect. There may be little things like Jo Anne mentioned above.
